We’ve been getting all sorts of goodies regarding the The Hobbit lately. I love how Peter Jackson & Co. are making so much material available for the fans. It’s a great way to keep interest piqued as well as keep the fans involved. Kudos to them for not making this film under a veil of secrecy.
Last week I posted the second video production diary. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should. It’s got some great behind-the-scenes stuff in it. Also released last week were some new stills of the dwarves that will be making an appearance in the film. As with everything Hobbit and LOTR related, they look fantastic.
Yahoo! Movies was kind enough to post these pictures along with descriptions on the characters. The first picture is of John Callen and Peter Hambleton as Oin and Gloin. Here’s the official photo description:
Distant cousins of Thorin Oakenshield, these two doughty Northern Dwarves join the Company out of a sense of loyalty to their kin, and also because they have a substantial sum of money invested in the venture. Along with Bombur, Gloin is the only other married Dwarf in the Company (there being a shortage of female dwarves in general). His wife is an acclaimed beauty with a particularly fine beard. Gloin is the proud father of a young son, Gimli, who will go on to become part of the famous Fellowship of the Ring.
The next photo is of Jed Brophy as Nori, Adam Brown as Ori and Mark Hadlow as Dori. After reading the photo description on these three, it makes me even more anxious to see the finished product.
These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he’s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that its guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal. Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide anyone who means harm to one of these brothers.
It looks like everything is coming together nicely so far. I really hope that we get some pictures of Kili soon. I’m really curious to see how Aiden Turner is going to look in make-up. For those who don’t know who he is, he played the vampire Mitchell on BBC’s Being Human.Tags: Adam Brown, Dori, Gloin, Jed Brophy, John Callen, LOTR, Mark Hadlow, Nori, Oin, Ori, Peter Hambleton, Peter Jackson, The Hobbit
